This widely used program quality assessment instrument is designed for preschool, kindergarten, and child care classrooms serving children 2 1/2 through 5 years of age. It can be used by program directors for supervision and program improvement, by teaching staff for self-assessment, by agency staff for monitoring, and in teacher training programs. The established reliability and validity of the ECERS-Rmake it particularly useful for research and program evaluation. Convenient organization in seven subscales: Space and Furnishings; Personal Care Routines; Language-Reasoning; Activities; Interaction; Program Structure; and Parents and Staff. Each of the 43 items is expressed as a 7-point scale with indicators for 1 (inadequate), 3 (minimal), 5 (good), and 7 (excellent). Notes for clarification and questions are included to improve accuracy in scoring. An introductory section gives detailed information about the rationale of the ECERS-R, the process of revision, and the reliability and validity of the scale. Full instructions for administration and scoring, as well as an Expanded Scoresheet and Profile that may be photocopied, are included with the scale.
